MRV Communications debuted its Fiber Driver EM316GSW-XY—a Gigabit/fast ethernet multifunction media converter. This converter is the latest addition to the company’s XY family of optical media converters. The Fiber Driver XY family of media converters offers multiple functions combined with a flexible, multi-rate small form-factor pluggable (SFP) design. The devices feature built-in media conversion, signal repeating and lambda conversion with optional wave division multiplexing (WDM) technology available via SFP interfaces. The EM316GSW-XY combines two 10/100/1000 ethernet copper ports and two 100/1000 SFP ethernet ports with four modes of operation to serve as a dual media converter, redundant converter, signal repeater or a four-port multi-media 100/1000 ethernet switch. It may act as a dual independent copper-to-fiber converter. The device operates in standalone unmanaged mode, or can also be used in a 16-slot Fiber Driver chassis supporting up to 30 converters.
